The Circle 1973 





Before the Pause 

Donald A. Gordon 

Faculty & Administration 

This year is unique in the history of Abbot. It encompasses the dissipation of an institution and its reformation into a new 
character. The moment has been transitory and discarded for an uncertain future. The merger has been distant and 
intangible. Frustrating, despairing, and anxious would be realistic impressions. 

But the essence of the community transcends this and settles into each one of us. We are a people. We coax one another 
through fearful changes and ride our waves of discovery. Without consciousness, we have committed ourselves to each other. 

Immersed in the exchange, it becomes more difficult to remember how much we have grown. Who was so wise to say the 
mountain is clearer from the plain? If we can extend further than ourselves, we can see we have many to thank. Without Eton 
Gordon, we would not be. His patience and his faith have been the current that sustains our growth. His dedication to a 
culture and genuine consideration for a people has generated an endless bounty of vitality among us all. We give him our 
unspoken respect and appreciation. 

We appreciate our faculty for their will to communicate and understand. Their concern has transformed an academic 
"earth" into a field of expression and exploration. Learning can be an adventure. Teachers and students have taught one 
another with a fearless drive to make that exchange. The relationship is personal rather than impressionable. 

As Abbot loses its present, we have much to feel for the past. And as for our destiny, we have careful guidance and a quality 
of human values to help us through the labor of rebirth.

Did you see the gulls, and did you breathe deep 

To breathe with the waves, and scream with the gulls? 



Catch it inside, and laugh it back out. 

Hold it in kites, and flutes and sails. 



Lost behind trees, and beating on backs. 

A player of the day, saying its sunset.

I was thinking about think-

stars and the wind and the

the rain and those colors 

doing all those things again and I got my tears and my

Did you forget to laugh today? 
Did you forget to smile 
And lighten someone's troubles 
Even for a little while? 

Did you forget to sing today? 
And let your whole world ring 
With a deeply felt expression 
Of your joy in everything?

Suddenly the cherries were there 
although I had forgotten that cherries exist 
and caused to be proclaimed: there never 

have been cherries — 
they were there, suddenly and dear. 

Plums fell and hit me; 

but whoever thinks that I was transformed 

because something fell and hit me 

has never been hit by plums 

Only when they poured nuts into my shoes 
and I had to walk because the children wanted 

the kernels 
I cried out for cherries, wanted plums to hit me 
transformed a little.

This piece of rudeness was more than Alice could bear: 
she got up in great disgust, and walked off; the 
Dormouse fell asleep instantly, and neither of the others 
took the least notice of her going, though she looked 
once or twice, half hoping that they would call after her: 
the last time she saw them, they were trying to put the 
Dormouse into the teapot.

For our world 

the circle turns again 

Throughout the year the same season's change 

It's meant a lot to me to start anew. 

Elton John 
Yes, it's meant a lot to us to start anew and, brimming with life, to enter this world and 
find new life awaiting our exploration. For us it seems the Abbot world has given more 
opportunity to grow and change than it gave to any before or will give to any hence. We 
arrived to find Abbot in the restless calm that followed a gale, a gale of change that strew 
Abbot's old ways into a thousand directions. We eagerly joined in the activity of cleaning up 
the storm strewn pieces following whatever whim seemed to beckon us particularly. We 
have since lived in an expanding environment that has given not more nor less room than 
we needed to expand our own internal lives. 

We were lucky to find Abbot as we did. We were infinitely lucky to find a world that 
would lend us support in all our efforts to reach our special destinations; support 
unconscious, save for the details that none of us learned to accept! And now we are caught 
standing at the bend in the road, very anxious for the future, for we find that the road and 
those travelling behind have merged with the landscape and disappeared. If we could just 
turn around and encourage those travelers as we were encouraged, but they are gone. We 
stand here a bit stunned in discovering that we are the last to leave our blessings and thanks. 
We want to ask why but the somewhere we never thought existed has appeared and beckons 
us beyond. We haven't time to gather up all the thoughts of ages of travellers. We can simply 
leave our own blessings and thanks. 

And so to Abbot, whose world turns its final circle, our love, our gratitude, and the pieces 
of our lives are left tucked gently in the notion of your eternity.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of 

foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of 

light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we 

had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we 

were all going direct the other way — in short, the period was so far like the present period, 

that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the 

superlative degree of comparison only.

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth 
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as 
life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty 
in the migration of birds, the ebb and flow of the 
tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is 
something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains 
of nature — the assurance that the dawn comes after 
night, and spring after winter.

"Why, Jon, why?" his mother asked. "Why is it so hard to be like the rest of 
the flock, Jon? Why can't you leave low flying to the pelicans and albatross? 
Why don't you eat? Son, you're bone and feathers! " 

"I don't mind being bone and feathers, mom. I just want to know what I can 
do in the air and what I can't, that's all. I just want to know." 

"See here, Jonathan, " said his father, not unkindly. "Winter isn't far away. 
Boats will be few, and the surface fish will be swimming deep. If you must 
study, then study well, but you can't eat a glide, you know. Don't you forget 
that the reason you fly is to eat." 

Jonathan nodded obediently. For the next few days he tried to behave like 
other gulls; he really tried, screeching and fighting with the flock around the 
peers and fishing boats, diving on scraps offish and bread. But he couldn't 
make it work. 

It's all so pointless, he thought, deliberately dropping a hard-won anchovy 
to a hungry old gull chasing him. I could be spending all this time learning to 
fly. There's so much to learn! 

It wasn't long before Jonathan Gull was off by himself again, Far out at sea, 
hungry, happy, learning.

Marianne Mulholland 

No one asked for third. September 
rolled around to the unfamiliar faces, and 
disillusioning dorm meeting^ reinforced 
the myth of a misunderstood adolescent. 
Only nine months to go. An existentialist 
code was born with Marianne as our 
guiding light. 

Good things happen when you merely 
exist. Mint Juleps on the porch with 
Josie, to the bleating of the guards, fellow 
indulgers. The enticing aroma of popcorn 
brought unlikely groups together to 
discuss such varying topics as crew, Far 
and Middleast relations, clothes and 
Women's Lib. Someone always knew a 
lot, and everyone else would say yeah. 
We'd all seen Sullivan's show in '64. The 
Beatles were really yeah, yeah, yeah and it 
was a good answer. No hassles. Ugh. 

One real attracting force to the third 
floor was Marianne. Marianne 
Mulholland was our housemother, also 
living existentially, and helping us 
through a trying time. 

Only J.D. Salinger, James Taylor, 
Kahlil Gibran, May Irwin and Josie 
Martin could describe third floor 

The world is full of

Just you wait, Carroll Bailey, just you wait! 

Just you wait while I slither through your gate! 

Just like David had Bathsheba 

I have come to give you fever — 

Just you wait, Sam-o Phillips, just you wait! 

A Salacious Satire 


Reverting back to the aftermath of the 
beforementioned, we will now simplify things by 
introducing complications . . . 



' ■ 






Now that you've had the applause that refreshes and we've 
had a nip backstage, you will rivet your attention . . . 



I have often been in this dorm before, 
But I always came in a window 
on the second floor; 
Now I find my way 
In the light of day 
Through the halls of this dorm 
on the hill. 



_ *i 


We were serenely humanistic and progressive in our time 
We had the courage to create an atmosphere sublime. 
We've grown accustomed to the place, 
Accustomed to her ways, 
Accustomed to ourselves.

Congratulations to the Senior Qass from 

One Proud Father 

Class of 1975 

Oh, a sleeping drunkard 
Up in Central Park 
And a lion-hunter 
In the jungle dark 
And a Chinese dentist, 
And a British queen — 
All fit together 
In the same machine, 
Nice, nice, very nice, 
Nice, nice, very nice — 
So many different people 
In the same device.

When Abbot gives up her name to Phillips, I 
hope she'll remember "What Every Woman 
Knows" (a play by Sir James Barrie) or what 
every woman did know till Women's Lib got 

Compliments of a woman who hopes her 
daughter won't be liberated from all the good 
things as well as the bad of the old days she grew 
up in. 

With Compliments from
